Yuyuan Garden - Review

The Yuyuan Garden or the Yu Garden is another commonly frequented tourist destination in Shanghai. Situated in the northeastern part of the ‘Old City’, this garden attracts a lot of foreign tourists on an annual basis.

The history connected with the construction of this garden is quite bittersweet in nature. Built in 1577, this garden took up a huge amount of resources during the rule of the Ming Dynasty. The Pan family undertook the construction of this garden, which is by all means astoundingly beautiful, also led to the bankruptcy and ruin of the Pan family.

The design of the garden is such that the six different areas are separated by ’dragon walls’. These walls are characterized by gray colored tiled ridges and these walls end in the fashion of a dragon’s head.

Do not miss the Magnificent Jade Rock which is the star attraction here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Shanghai Itinerary 5 Days.

Yuyuan Garden, Shanghai Reviews

  • Garden is a lovely tranquil area unexpectedly set right in the middle of a busy district in central Shanghai. For a relatively small place there is lots to see. Rockeries (look out for the famous Jade rock) / pavilions / ponds and ancient trees. After visiting the gardens spend some time in the surrounding bazaar (good to also see at night fully lit up).

  • Very interesting place. U can find so different chineese food. The only negative thing is that someone approaches to you and asks "do u want watches and bags) constantly.

  • It's a beautiful garden, it's a great museum, it's a marvelous restaurant, it's a place from Heaven, I guess! Bravo, people from China!

  • Amazing place. Beautiful garden. Worth the viait

  • Amazing Garden Wonderful for a relaxing walk
